1:00 pm
and i marked "other". discover the story only your dna can tell. order your kit now at ♪ >> neil: is blow about to blow, hurricane force winds now category 4 and then some 130 mile-per-hour winds and then some as this monster bears down on the east coast. forecasters are already calling it extremely dangerous. that is, perhaps, an understatement. states of emergency now declared in the carolinas and in virginia. more can soon follow. we will be talking to the governor of south carolina henry mcmaster who has just ordered a mandatory evacuation across the entire coast line. more than a million people are affected. welcome, everybody, i'm neil cavuto this is "your world" on a stormy world at that the president taking no chances he has chan said the
1:01 pm
planned jackson mississippi rally for friday. adom klotz on how bad things could get. susan li on folks not really waiting very long to find out. we begin with adam. hey, adam. >> hey there, neil. you said it, this is a huge storm system and it's really strengsd here over the today category 2 storm up to a category 4 storm all in the last several hours. there is defined eye wall right there. it is still a really long ways away. still south of bermuda. here is the track it's going to make. it stays a category 4 storm as it heads closer to the u.s. coast. there is a lot of warm water there and that's going to fuel this and only strengthen it. now, what is the timing going to be with this system as it approaches the coast? i'm taking you now to thursday morning and you are sitting just off the coast. a situation will be deteriorating by then. likely making landfall either thursday afternoon or in to the overnight hours. still a ways off it could speed up or slow down.
1:02 pm
we are tracking the timing of this very closely as it moves that direction. the speed, the intensity of this storm is going to be there. the wind speeds 130 miles per hour up to 156 miles per hour. staying a category 4 storm likely on the high end of this. wouldn't be surprised if when it made landfall we are up close to 150 mile-per-hour winds as there is a lot of fuel in the area for this. typically you don't see a storm that's sitting this far off towards bermuda, making its way all the way to the u.s. coast. generally it would turn north high pressure system forcing to the southeast. all of our models are in pretty good agreement with this asst as we run over the next couple of days. several models anywhere from the south carolina the mirddle beach area stretching up to the outer banks where the models are taking. this one caveat once we get to the coast none of the models can agree what happens next. does it hover right around the coast bringing a whole lot of rain? does it quickly run inland? that's something we have to
1:03 pm
wait and see. if it does sit near the coast besides the strong winds we're obviously going to see another concern is rainfall. the longer it sits still the more rain you will get. current models are isolated areas getting up to 2 feet of total precipitation. widespread across portions of north carolina up to virginia getting up to over a foot of rain. it's going to be windy. there is going to be the storm surge but we are going to have to be paying close attention to rainfall totals as well. >> they sound like they are going to be doozies. adam klotz thank you very much. the calm before the storm. this is part of the south carolina coast that the governor of that state has recommended be cleared out ahead of this storm. we'll be talking to him shortly, that's better than a million individuals who will have to get out of town and fast. some of the usual precautions ahead of that are cruise lines and airlines taking precautions of their own. fox business network susan li on what they're doing right now. susan? >> all right, neil. so hurricane florence, of course, impacting travel. six crewsships ar cruise ships g
1:04 pm
diverted. two norwegian one and one ocean an scheduled. they were all headed for the rib caribbean, bermuda or bahamas they will skip. one was supposed to sail south and now north to canada to avoid hurricane florence. be sure to check with your cruise to confirm. airlines waiving change fees. american airlines, southwest waiving fees that usually cost as much as $200. difference of fares so fliers can alter travel plans accordingly. given the path of hurricane florence, 2 23 airplanes will likely be impacted two major airline hubs. delta atlanta hub and american charlotte hub. usually a connecting point for many flights. those not traveling and boarding up their homes this is helping lift some shares like home supply companies
1:05 pm
like home depot and lowe's very busy hurricane season and power being impacted so home generator supply general rack and beacon seeing higher spending during this time. insurance companies travelers, all state are falling today with high end real estate insured chub and that's expected with damage and travel delay claims as a result of hurricane florence spinning closer to the southeast coast line. issuing a warning to the norfolk virginia hub as well. telling all abled warships and submarines to basically sail away before hurricane florence makes landfall. back to you. >> neil: no chances with that wise advice. former fema director learned the hard way what can happen when people are not on the same page. for now michael it looks like everybody is recognizing the urgency of what is approaching. is there any risk in telling people days before something hits when it might bypass
1:06 pm
them to evacuate anyway? you get the blow back, follow the government's orders and evacuate and going somewhere else. you always face that risk. it's always a no-win situation. what people need to understand is in this particular situation, have you all of the models that predict the hurricane basically going the same direction. and i think the hurricane itself will probably maintain a category 4 status based on all the reports i have read. but, once it makes landfall, once it begins to break down, you are going to have a major flooding event in north carolina, perhaps virginia and west virginia. because these storms tend to peter out as they start petering out you get deluge of rain and then have you flash flooding in all of these hills in the carolinas and virginias. >> neil: some in the affected path of the storm for example in the carolinas. they have not had a direct hit in the better part of three decades of the storm of any consequence like
1:07 pm
this. so, maybe they get sort of cavalier or just a little too easy going about it what would you advise them. >> they do get cavalier. i would remind them same thing that occurred now occurred back in 2003 or 2004. i forget the name of the hurricane but it was coming up north carolina up toward the virginia coast and then began to dissipate and fall apart. once it fell apart and made landfall the rain just continued for days upon days. and instead of having a major hurricane event, we had a major flash flooding event that affected lots of north and south carolina, lots of parts of virginia. almost all the way up into d.c. people get cavalier about these things. again, it's a major storm it hasn't occurred in a while. everybody is doing what they should be doing. so i would just encourage people to do. this make sure you are ready make sure that your homes are -- if you have a vacation home that's boarded up, pay attention to what
1:08 pm
people on the television stations and radio stations are saying. if they recommend an evacuation, know where you are going to go. don't wait until that day to figure out oh, how am i going to get from point a to point b because those roads may be blocked because of flash flooding. think about what you need to do. >> neil: michael brown, thank you very much. and to that point as michael was speaking here. maryland's governor larry hogan has already declared a state of emergency. fourth state to do so. north carolina, south carolina, virginia and now maryland all taking no chances with this. state of emergency in effect. much more after this.
1:09 pm
1:10 pm
1:11 pm
so, i have this recurring dream. i'm 85 years old in a job where i have to wear a giant hot dog suit. what? where's that coming from? i don't know. i started my 401k early, i diversified... i'm not a big spender. sounds like you're doing a lot. but i still feel like i'm not gonna have enough for retirement. like there's something else i should be doing. with the right conversation, you might find you're doing okay. so, no hot dog suit? not unless you want to. no. schedule a complimentary goal planning session today with td ameritrade®. >> neil: i think they are talking about meet the faulker's hook you up to lie detector whether you were the one that leaked this new
1:12 pm
orleananonymous story to the "nw york times." kevin, what's the latest on who this is? >> i'm thinking maybe a book deal out of this. maybe write something up. i'm kidding. >> neil: absolutely. >> maybe i'm kidding. maybe i'm thought kidding. actually, as relates to the lie detector test, neil, it's not going to be necessary or happen i think that's in part because there are three trains of thought at work here. the first is, of course, the white house is obviously not concerned that this is a senior administration official. i have talked to a number of white house officials on background and they are convinced that despite what have you read this does not fall under the category of a soonier administration official. vice president mike pence was talking about this on "fox news sunday" with our own chris wallace. he made an interesting point in the conversation with chris wallace. listen, first of all, that writer will probably expose who they are. they will have loose lips. they will talk to someone and they will be exposed.
1:13 pm
and there is some folks here to be can bit, neil believe this isn't single writer at all this is orchestrated to sow dissent in this administration. he doesn't know who wrote this piece but he knows it wasn't him. >> do you think you know who anonymous is. >> i don't. i don't know. but i do know that they should resign and leave this administration. should all top officials take a lie detector test would you agree to take one. >> i would agree to take it in a heart beat. >> no lie detectors are being used or talked about or looked at as a possibility. frankly, the white house and the staff here are focused on doing our jobs. and trying to show up here every day and do what we can to help better the american people, not deal with cowards that refuse to put their names in an anonymous letter. >> white house press secretary sarah sanders
1:14 pm
there who also said this person was sad, p pathetic and gutless. and she was surprised they could get that much attention from the media. by the way for his part, the president, neil, suggested that the doj that is the department of justice should find the writer as a matter of national security. that sentiment was echoed by sarah sanders the "times" would disagree. the "times," of course, published this anonymously written op-ed. frankly pretty unprecedented in journalism circles. let me share what the "times" has to say about its belief that, no, the president should not, if you will, sick the doj on to this person. they say we're confident that the doj understands that the first amendment protects all-american citizens and that it would not participate in such a blatant abuse of government power. that from eileen murphy at the "times." i know that this will probably strike you as not terribly unusual, omarosa throwing her name in the hat of those who have an opinion
1:15 pm
about this neil. she suggests it may be a senior staff on mike pence's staff maybe even his chief of staff. of course her opinion is worthless here at the white house and great many other places. neil? >> neil: man o man just getting to the of this if we ever do. marc lotter here former secretary to the vice president of the united states. i was thinking when you were coming, if every top cabinet official. i think every cabinet official has said they have nothing to do with this and swear it off. is there any benefit in then -- if the "new york times" is stating that this is a senior official, administration official that by cabinet official, wouldn't the "new york times" then be obligated to say this person just lied in public and we should get to the bottom of that? >> one would think that if they -- if this person who is behind this denies writing it that the "times" would be required to say
1:16 pm
well, that's actually not true. if not, where is their credibility. >> neil: cabinet level secretary. >> there is a lot of speculation about that. as i said the other day, i think in d.c. everyone is a senior white house official when they want a better job or be quoted in the media. so, i'm not sure if this person ever had any kind of interactions with the president. >> neil: it's having the desired effect on the person who wrote it, right and the "new york times" quoting it. it sent the paranoia level up. sarah huckabee sanders says not to the degree they are going to do lie detector tests. everyone must be looking over their shoulder. >> you have to wonder if you can have the honest conversations you need to have that that building or really any institution of government. can you talk with other staff people and have a disagreement. >> neil: is this administration different than others? leaking in all types of administrations. democrat and republican. i'm just wondering whether the woodward book currency
1:17 pm
particularly rampant here or is it. >> woodward has been writing books on presidents going back to reagan. reagan called him a liar and called him materially wrong in his facts. the one thing can i say in words of the allegation that it was the vic vice president's chief of staff, i know him personally and can i absolutely assure you that's not something he would do. and there is no evidence behind that claim. as much evidence as i had if i said colonel mustard wrote it in the study with jefferson's candle stick u that's what we're dealing with. >> neil: what about the notion to protect the president from himself it comes woodward book and anonymous writers swipe president's desk to do harm. does that make sense to you. >> no. i served every official every level of government. i have had heated and spirited disagreements and discussions. that's what we are there to do. when the person who put their name on the ballot, makes a decision, it's our
1:18 pm
job to go execute it and, if you can't, your name should go on your reconciliation and if you disagree, then put your name on the ballot later an run on your own. that's not your job. >> neil: there have been moments with this president and others who have been talked out of a position they might have earlier advocated or had a discussion of why our troops, for example, we had as many as we did in south carolina or others. -- or south korea, i apologize u and that the president has been dissuaded of that not the first time and not the first president where that's happened. but, so this sort of stuff routinely happens. >> i think this is a president who has said no to orthodoxy. and even though. >> neil: the point where some of the people familiar with orthodoxy say i'm just going to take this slip of paper and remove it. >> that's where they need to take the piece of paper being their resignation. if you cannot support the decision of the person who was elected by the people, have you no business being there and please get out of way for someone else to be able to fulfill that role.
1:19 pm
that's just something you cannot do. even if you lose the argument, they are the people who were elected to make the decision. and it's your job to execute it even if you disagree. >> neil: do you think the person who did this is guilty of treason? >> depends. it depends if they have -- if they hold a high level security clearance. i'm not going to say treason, i think that's a very specific act. whether it is illegal. i think that's something that desktsl definitely needs te looked at. how county president or any senior staff member who isn't this author do into the white house situation room, debate some of the most complicated and serious issues facing our planet and not be able to trust that maybe the person next to them is going to go write an anonymous op-ed, it cannot be allowed to happen. >> marc lotter, thank you very much,very, very much. >> good seeing you. >> neil: not too long ago about last week at this time he was widely considere admireda titan now is he out of a job
1:20 pm
and potentially without any pay for that job after this. iti. iti. like e-commerce spurring cardboard demand. the pursuit of allergy-free peanuts. and mobile payment reaching new markets. this is strategic investing. because your investments deserve the full story. t.rowe price. invest with confidence. each of us is different. and each cancer is different. how it reacts, how it evades and adapts. and how we attack it. that's why at cancer treatment centers of america, we use diagnostic tools that help us better understand what drives each person's cancer. this is what we mean by outsmarting cancer. and for some, it may uncover more effective treatment options. like christine bray.
1:21 pm
after battling ovarian cancer for several years, her test results revealed a potential treatment not considered previously a drug therapy that targeted her tumor. today, christine's metastatic cancer is in remission. this is precision cancer treatment. because at cancer treatment centers of america. we're not just fighting cancer. we're outsmarting it. visit and schedule an appointment with our cancer care specialists today. "have you lost weight?" of course i have- ever since i started renting from national. because national lets me lose the wait at the counter... ...and choose any car in the aisle. and i don't wait when i return, thanks to drop & go. at national, i can lose the wait...and keep it off. looking good, patrick. i know.
1:22 pm
(vo) go national. go like a pro.
1:23 pm
>> neil: local officials in south carolina are sort of briefing south korean southbrie. looking at myrtle beach. more than a million people are affected along this coast line here and being told to get out and get out fast. certainly by tomorrow at noon. so, we will keep an eye on that. speaking to the state's governor what he is doing to prepare for that and anything else as four states have already declared states of emergency. they are maryland, virginia, north carolina, and big media executive goes down. this isles is les moonves. charlie gas reno reporting
1:24 pm
on this a lot of people under the assumption he leaves with big pay package, no need to second guess any of that charlie kept digging and digging and apparently that was not the case. good to see you my friend. >> thanks for having me. >> neil: what happened here. >> two stories here. what happened with les moonves forced out of cbs. that huge pay package have a lot of people thinking could be up to 180 million guaranteed is not guaranteed. sec. >> securities and exchange. >> pending the outcome. there is $120 million put in escrow pending the outcome of the investigation. he will either get ought of that part of that or none of that if the investigation into those sexual misconduct allegations comes back very bad for him, they are withhold that essentially terminate him, fire him. and then with that all his perks go away. he doesn't get to keep the driver, he doesn't get the
1:25 pm
office for two years as post of the party ceos usually get. he doesn't get his security, it's done. they sever the relationship. that's one story. we will know within the next month or two what's going on there. the second story i think is a corporate story with cbs. what is its future. again, confirming our reporting, if you look in the agreement today, there is a stand still agreement between the controlling red stone families and cbs. meaning red stone family can't touch cbs for two years. they can't force a merger, almost impossible. there is a vote of the independent directors that would have to take place but that's very difficult. for two years where they can't force a merger between viacom the other property they own and cbs which les moonves was trying to prevent that that is al the cbs board wants to sell cbs to a bigger player and that they're going to shop it. i have sources in there and that's from what i understand that's their intention. now, who would buy it is another big story. at&t probably can't because they're ingesting time
1:26 pm
warner right now. comcast can't because the justice department absolutely hates them. trump hates the company. thinks it's too big. it's why they hate at&t and time warner. they hate comcast for the same reason, huge media come conglomerate. merging distribution and out of it. maybe verizon or maybe see a tech company step up. amazon, a netflix step up. one problem have selling this thing right now if at&t is out, comcast is out and verizon is kind of iffy, those tech companies are developing their own content. they may not want to buy this old media content. that might force cbs in the end to merge back up with viacom, to do what sherri redstone wanted to do for in the beginning which caused the huge, i mean, remember, les moonves sued sherri red redstone. >> neil: of course won here separate issue in that sense forced out for other reasons. >> she won and she lost.
1:27 pm
she got rid of him. the board wants to sell the company and does not want to merge with viacom which she lost on and, you know, hopefully the shareholders win and they find a suiter that's going to pay up. i will say this though, if you think of the media landscape, there is not a lot of companies out there. does amazon really want to do apple. do these companies really want to step up to the plate and buy old line media? cbs is a cachet name. "60 minutes," cbs sports. some of that stuff on cbs is being impacted greatly by cord cutting and some of the technological advances that hurt the other. >> neil: saying nothing of the sexual allegations that could haunts it for some time. >> that's the other side of the story. i think at some point people are going to say what did the board know and when did they know it? >> neil: exactly. >> does that put the board of directors at jeopardy for a share of the lawsuits. >> neil: charlie ga gasparino. republicans are coming up with the meantime is one
1:28 pm
thing. what the president wants to do that could get in their way is quite another.
1:29 pm
if you're waiting patiently for a liver transplant, it could cost you your life. it's time to get out of line with upmc. at upmc, living-donor transplants put you first. so you don't die waiting. upmc does more living-donor liver transplants than any other center in the nation.
1:30 pm
find out more and get out of line today. >> neil: you are looking at myrtle beach, south carolina the calm before the storm it is possible this could pick up fast. the governor of that state on an evacuation momentarily.
1:31 pm
1:32 pm
>> neil: this is writesville beach north carolina. we were showing you south carolina before. needless to say north carolina, south carolina, virginia, maryland have all declared states of emergency now ahead of this monster of a hurricane florence now packing category 4 winds in excess of 130 miles per hour. and moving very, very slowly. that worries a lot of the folks including our own meteorologist here saying the longer it hangs around the more flooding that will follow upwards of 2 feet of rain that could hit most of the most populated areas of this country. so we will keep you posted on that. keeping you posted on a political storm meanwhile and the prospects of a government shut down. republican does not want to see it. the question is whether they can avoid it and avoid a president who wants to find funding for a wall sort of like a potential deal breaker. chad pergram is following all of this. chad, what's the latest? >> well, right now there is an agreement between house and senate leaders to work out what we call a mini bus
1:33 pm
spending bill. the president back in march said he would veto an omnibus spending bill that quest covers all 12 sections of federal funding. what they have done is put three of these funding bills together in mini bus covers energy and water, v.a. and military construction. also the legislative branch and they will move this through the senate, probably later this week and then the house of representatives. now, as you say, the president continues to threaten a shutdown over a border wall. they are not looking at funding that any time soon. in fact, that may go after the fiscal year which is september 30th. i pressed house speaker paul ryan a couple days ago on this because the president keeps threatening a shut down and house speaker paul ryan says no, there is not going to be one. listen. >> at the end of the day,. >> so why do you think -- i mean, is that just how he plays ball? you say all right, that's just how he rolls? >> yeah. [laughter] >> we have a good understanding, i'm confident our understanding will stick. >> so at the end of the day,
1:34 pm
you know, the house and senate republican leaders say wait a minute, there is not going to be a government shut down here. they have other mini bus spending bills that they have to move through. the next one probably is definition. if they don't deal with that there is going to be an 18 billion-dollar cut in defense. and they have to work this all out by the first of october. otherwise, there is a government shut down for everything. neil? >> neil: i see what you did there with the little mini bus. did have you that in your office or did we have to fork out some bucks? >> well, i have many mini buses. they have two others in the garage here as i mentioned defense, also, you know, one that would deal with the interior, and then there might be one later on that would deal with homeland security. this is the one for energy, water, v.a., cohen and executive branch. >> neil: i'm sure there is a minivan and mini cooper. i see where you are going with it brilliant my friend chad per grams. andy biggs and congressman. congressman, i don't know if you brought any props with you here. could you explain the likelihood of a shut down?
1:35 pm
i'm told giving everything republicans are trying to do, they don't want that on them, so it's not going to happen. what do you say? >> well, i think it's highly unlikely. i would stand with the president if that's what he wanted to get the border wall funding. but i don't think that's going to happen. you are going to see, you know, basically this is same old same old, where why are going to kick it down the road. we are going to do probably 2 or 3 month mini bus, basically a cr. it's going to last for a short-term and then we are going to say oh it's done for the midterm election. and that's not good for anybody, quite frankly, and that's not good for -- nothing i really want to see happen. >> neil: you know what's so weird? people who might be of one political persuasion versus another. you and i have discussed this congressman. republicans always get the blame for these shut downs. in other words, they are the ones who are stubborn insisting we control spending, no fault on the part of democrats that they are just as insistent that we continue spending it is what it is. i understand that. but, a lot of your colleagues are sick of getting that wrap and it
1:36 pm
opens the way for deals that call for more spending and what will likely be a trillion-dollar deficit. so, some of your hard lined conservatives say have you got to stand up to this and not let the democrats write the narrative. you say? >> i say that's exactly right. i mean, i'm so tired of us looking and sounding -- we say we don't want to spend money, but federal rev that'revenue settingrecords ande trillion-dollar deficit because we won't cut spending and don't do long term spending plans and do the budget the way it's supposed to be done. here we are at the end of the fiscal year again. instead of doing maxy bus like we did a few months ago, now do a couple of mini buses and basically you're opening up a box of sneakers except it's in several boxes instead of one big box. so you are still doing the massive spending. and you are not taking care of what you should be doing. that's the real problem. and republicans always get the blame for it.
1:37 pm
and maybe, in some respects, we should because we are supposed to be the party that's fiscally responsible and we are not really showing that as much as we should. >> neil: do you think it's going to cost you control of the house? >> well, i think that there are some things that might cost us. if we kept our promises and if we do keep our promises i think we win the house. if we don't keep our promises we are not going to went house back. >> neil: doesn't sound like going to keep this promise. >> well, i'm hoping that we do keep the promise. i'm an optimist, kneel, you know that i'm an opt mist. >> neil: thank you very much. always good to see you. >> good to see you. >> neil: south carolina four states along the eastern seaboard of the united states getting ready for what could be a massive storm here. but, it is how they are getting ready. days before presumably would hit. the mandatory evacuation and why he is recommending it in his state from the governor of south carolina after this. and service. with such a long history,
1:38 pm
it's easy to trust geico! thank you todd. it's not just easy. it's-being-a-master-of-hypnotism easy. hey, i got your text- sleep! doug, when i snap my fingers you're going to clean my gutters. ooh i should clean your gutters! great idea. it's not just easy. it's geico easy. todd, you will go make me a frittata. we really pride ourselves on making it easy for you >> tech: at safelite autoglass, to get your windshield fixed. with safelite, you can see exactly when we'll be there. saving you time for what you love most. >> kids: whoa! >> kids vo: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace ♪
1:39 pm
1:40 pm
1:41 pm
>> neil: they call tax cut 2.0, another chance for republicans to go back to the tax cutting well. this would be an effort to make permanent a lot of the individual rate cuts that would sort of phase out i believe around the year 2025. in other words, a lot of sixth graders today when they are in college that would take effect. "the washington examiner" phil wagman and danielle mclaughlin and maddy glover. how realistic is this that they get. this a lot of mechanics as to why they had to phase in and phase out certain tax cuts. >> right. >> neil: republicans want to make them permanent on the individual side. would that make it permanent in november. >> i think it will. this is a vote that republicans are taking that will remind americans exactly why it is they are feeling economic enthusiasm for the first time in some cases in years. this last week we saw really positive job numbers. not only because jobs are created and the economy remains strong but because wages are going up. that was unweather forecast crucial promises made when the tax cut and jobs act tax
1:42 pm
cuts 1.0 was passed in december. 2.0 is a great business setting opportunity for republicans to remind americans what is a stand for. at the same time, making permanent some of the promises in that law. like you said that individual side of the code is so important to give certainty for families and families across the country. >> neil: when you covered, this one republican after another whom i chatted is always surprised that his party, her party isn't getting the bang for the buck off of these tax cuts, economic booms, unemployment rates, markets, et cetera, that they think they should. a lot of parties in the past that have been shepherding recoveries have said the thing. they have gotten something from it at the polls. republicans are fearful they might not. what's going wrong? >> i think mattie is absolutely write. this is an opportunity for a second bite at the apple here. let's be realistic republicans in the house know that their senate colleagues don't have the votes to get these tax cuts through. they have to be wondering
1:43 pm
whether or not they even have the 216 votes in the lower chamber to get this to the finish line. tax cuts 2.0 aren't necessarily about legislating, they are about messaging and forcing democrats to go back on the record and vote against a second round of tax cuts at a moment when you have barack obama kind of coming out of the woodwork awkwardly and taking credit for the current booming economy. so republicans see this as an opportunity to force democrats to, you know, vote no again and then hopefully regain some of the momentum that they have lost going into the mid terms because, like you said, they don't think they have gotten the return on investment that they deserve. >> neil: i don't know if that's always the case on the senate side, danielle. i remember when i was talking to mitch mcconnell not too long ago about this subject, he was leary about pushing such a vote in the senate because it would give some of those democrats in big trump states up for re-election an opportunity to make good on improve their chances. i know that's the senate version. the house. but, do democrats look bad
1:44 pm
